the time. he brings it up all the time. it is his republican opponent, mr. romney, who has generally done his best to avoid the subject altogether. i have to say, credit where credit's due. today while he still did not go there directly, at least, at last, finally, today mitt romney got close to the subject. >> we have huge numbers of our men and women that are returning from conflict that are seeking counseling, psychological counseling, and can't find that counseling within our system. and, of course, record numbers of suicides. this is a crisis. >> that was mitt romney speaking today in springfield, virginia, to the american legion. and, no, he is still not apparently able to say anything about the war directly, but at least today where you saw him there, he did mention that this war has produced an outcome of war. which is american war veterans. neither the war nor its veterans were mentioned, of course, in mr. romney's speech to the nation upon becoming his party's nominee for president. he's trying to fix the veterans part of that oversight. he really as a candidate still seems inca
also offered some remarks. and in a breathless day of nonstop talk and travel, mr. romney has just arrived for a rousing event in ohio where he's desperately hoping to claw his way out of a substantial polling deficit. there are sign mrs. romney may be coming to his senses after joking at the clinton global initiative that he could do with a little help from a former president. >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. all i got to do now is wait a couple days for that bounce to happen. >> right, we'll keep our eye on that. the other bump that romney loves to talk about these days is his attack on the president for saying the middle east would face bumps in the road and romney's suggestion that the president was somehow referring to the deaths of the american ambassador to libya and three other diplomats. a theme that romney reiterated today though in a more muted form. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the musl
beach. and he went right at mr. romney on foreign policy and the wars. and he is -- he's right there when he says that we don't know what mr. romney would do if he . ey srely and. vaguely that he supports what president obama is doing in afghanistan in terms of there being a timeline for leaving but he has also said he was against a timeline for leaving in the past. so really who knows? he's not even trying. the closest we've gotten to any competing cont republican tin wa pbl wt sator john mccain at the republican convention when he said that the afghanistan war just shouldn't end. he also thinks that the iraq war shouldn't have ended. so i'm noture that it's a politicallviable position. even if it is an internally cogent one from the senar. fois yr'mi i apparently just not going to happen. not unless he starts it now. 40 days out, mitt romney did get as close as he gets to talking about the issue today. in that he spoke before a group of veterans and talked about a concern about veterans. even if he didn't say what he wa to do about tt con. mr. romney, in fact, implied that t
, he is measured and careful of what he says. when i look at mr. romney, i am so sick and tired of the fear and warmongering and am afraid that he would start another military conflict in the middle east. as a voter, on that topic alone, president obama has my vote, because i do not believe that we and the world can afford another military conflict on this planet. thank you for allowing me to talk this morning. have a good day. host: thank you for your comments this morning. round rock, texas. caller: i agree with the republican that just called in, i also support the president as far as foreign affairs go. mr. romney used to belong to a chinese organization, it was an oil conglomerate. they were supporting iran. in 2011, mr. romney separated himself from these chinese oil conglomerate. he talks out of one side of his mouth, but acts out of another side. he said our greatest threat was russia when our greatest threat right now is al qaeda. i do not think that he has the experience or knowledge to help of foreign affairs. host: what do you make of his foreign policy affairs state

. they say, yes, yes, the polls show them losing ohio, but their internal romney polls show mr. romney specially tied in ohio. at least they show romney inside the margin of error in ohio. but again, they are not releasing this magical internal polling data. they are saying that's what it says. kind of like the summary of mitt romney's tax returns. if it's true they have internal polling data doing great in ohio, just in the interest of their donors, shouldn't they release those numbers? this isn't a magic thing. this isn't a hypothetical thing. in a real poll, which we can see the data for, we can see not only that it in ohio, president obama is up by eight, we can see why president obama is up by eight in ohio. that "washington post" poll out today has other data in it including the fact that 36% of all ohio voters say they have been contacted by the obama campaign. that contacted by the campaign number is seven points lower in term ls of the romney campaign. the obama campaign is doing it better. they are talking to more voters in ohio. that's making a difference. the hill today rep

romney meet in denver for the first of three debates. the stakes are sky high, especially for mr. romney. running mate paul ryan made the case for a mitt romney presidency today in the toss-up state of new hampshire. >> we have got to stop spending money we don't have. >> reporter: vice president joe biden campaigned in battled ground florida, where he argued that the obama administration inherited trillion-dollar deficits from the bush administration. >> they put two wars on a credit card, not paying a penny, not paying a penny. >> reid: meanwhile be president obama and mitt romney were hunkered down today cramming for next week's debate showdown. both sides are working hard to lower expect aches by praising their opponents. a romney adviser says the president has the advantage as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. the obama campaign says romney has the agent having debated about two dozen times during the republican primary campaign. >> both of these individuals are had ample experience debating but governor romney has had more practice recently and pra

in recent weeks mr. romney has been able to get on offense. he was criticized for his early statements suggesting that the cairo embassy remarks attacks on benghazi were inappropriate. when you look at the subsequent list of alleged gaffs, misstatements and inappropriate rhetoric the president has been accused of even suggesting egypt isn't an ally made it possible for mr. romney to take more offensive approach on foreign policy and go up against the president to suggest he has not been a strong leader. bill: carl we'll be back to you in a moment. as soon as we see governor romney we'll bring our viewers to that event. meanwhile another one in new york and martha has that. martha: big day here. after governor romney, the president will address world leaders at the united nations general assembly this morning. that is expected to get underway 10:00 eastern time. we're getting an advanced look at some of what the president is expected to say this morning. chief white house correspondent ed henry is in the new york newsroom. ed, how is the president expected to address in his comments tod

of a certain type of economics that governor kasich espouses that mr. romney would of course, follow. so i think there's that factor in ohio you have to remember. ohio next to wisconsin was the calderon of this battle between workers trying to have -- >> jennifer: you think the residual battle will carry forward until november? that emotion that people felt? >> i think so. >> jennifer: i want to get you into something more specific because this is being played right now in ohio, advertisement that romney is running on tv. take a listen. >> policies of the current administration's got is attacking my livelihood. >> they're wanting to close these mines down. >> we have 250 years of coal. why wouldn't we use it? utility bills are up. people wonder how they're going to have a brighter future if they can't see how they can make it to the end of the next month. >> jennifer: very interesting because coal is an industry that's a union industry. is president obama to blame for coal industry layoffs? will that ad be effective?
nine points over mr. romney. absentee bat los -- but can the congressman and governor romney close the deal in the badger state in the imagine who scareded off against scott walker against in the gub natural torl elections, mayor barrett, thank you so much for joining me. so the president hit the 50% mark in her state. how could you compare the president -- >> well, it's rising and i think when paul ryan was first name as a presidential-vice presidential can dwat. the president was here last week, he'll be here later this week. i think they know they're not going to have a 14-point victory here. but they're hoping to please the deal pretty soon. >> is that what you attribute this surge to? >> well, i think that is certainly one of the factors, but i think another one is that the president does have a strong ground game here in wisconsin and as you can imagine, there's going to be a much larger turnout in the november election than in any of the previously election. that always brings a lot of students out. but they're working very, very hard here, the obama campaign has got a very,
is joining us now from washington, d.c. kevin good to see you. what is the one thing that mr. romney will do to try and push ahead with his economic agenda that he has not been doing and that needs to be doing in previous weeks? >> well, i think that the biggest thing coming up is that governor romney is going to have a chance to speak directly to the american people in the debates and to challenge president obama. you know, one of the untold stories of this campaign for example is that president obama has absolutely no plan to create jobs. that thing they were waving at the convention, his 4 trillion dollars plan was actually just his budget from last year which went -- which went to the floor of the house and senate and got no votes. that kind of conversation is not getting through because of the mainstream media bias. dagen: mr. romney can also speak for himself. he has been widely criticized i was watching the o'reilly factor with bill o'reilly just last night about lack of specifics. he was asked in the interview of 60 minutes to get specific on the tax breaks he would get rid of, and h

is probably not whether the government will keep growing under mr. obama or mr. romney, but rather how fast. tom foreman, cnn, washington. >>> child sex trafficking, those three words pretty disturbing. even more disturbing, how some websites make ordering a girl for sex just as simple as ordering a pizza. coming up at 7:00. >> how would you feel for example, as a mother, if you saw an ad like this? or an ad like this? or, i mean, this girl, she says she's 19. if you saw your daughter in this, like this -- >> her answer tonight at 7:00 eastern. i'm susan hendricks. the situation woman room with wolf britser starts now. >> you're in the situation room. waging battle in a battle ground state. >>> extremists on the rise in libya. al qaeda is only part of the problem. and a multimillion renovation leaves a washington, d.c. landmark infested with algae. we want to welcome our viewers from the united states and the world. i'm wolf blitzer and

. this from the "new york times." it says, "mr. romney's team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers he has memorizened and has been tracksing on aides since august." now, they're right debates are about moments but ain an amusin image. mitt romney sitting in a room peppering them with zingers. i would like to be on the wall hearing that. >> not about zingers, serious substantive policy. and in "the washington post" showing a virtual dead heat with the president and mitt romney. obama with a slight edge. 49-47%. but also in this survey, it delves down into the expectations game for this debate. what can you tell me about those numbers, peter? >> reporter: despite what chris christie said, and that is sort of another mixed message coming out of the romney campaign, romney is winning the expectations game if you look at the polls. more likely to win the debate, president obama 55%. mitt romney just 31% of likely voters expect him to win the debate. that's a good place to be for him going in there, but like you said, there's a lot of
. rasmussen shows how many people are for the president and how many for mr. mitt romney . rasmussen poll was accurate in 2004 and 8 getting the results according to the track being poll. 43 percent said they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for obama and 15 percent haven't decided . >> gretchen: that's huge. that is a dead heat report to look at the certainty of these people they are voting early right and these people who know in the debates who they will vote for. these debates are for the undecided it is a huge chunk of the population. other than voters turn out of the base. that will turn the election>> eric: that is 10-20 percent of the undisguisable and persuadable. throw that poll up one more second. in the bottom of that. likely voters. those are the polls that are most accurate and go after the likely voters . not just people who poll random people. >> steve: you and i talked about george washington university. they do a battle ground poll . barak 49 percent x. romney 47. and now he leads by 4 in the independents which is a better number for the former
that mr. romney has been at the campaign headquarters in boston preparing. why is the president in nevada? >> well, it's a battle ground state as you've noted earlier and i remember covering john kerry in 2004. a debate against the president, then president bush in arizona and did his debate prep in new mexico, a media attention in the battle ground state and he's trying to do that president obama in nevada and the foreclosure crisis and the unemployment rate double digits and the president knows economic challenges here and hoping he'll get a little play for his message and his plans and rally and it's going to start a few moments behind me with someone with early voting starting in nevada in a couple of weeks and they feel good in the obama camp. nevada even though it's hard hit, the polls show the race very close and they think mitt romney should be far ahead with the economic message and people are hurting here. they think it's a sign that romney is not breaking through and the president is doing pretty well in nevada. >> harris: you bring up a good point. this first debate focusing o
